Calvin Naquin

Calvin Paul Naquin, 85 years old, beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend to many was called to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on May 7, 2020, surrounded by his loving family. He entered this world on June 5, 1934, born to Villa and Arthur Naquin, in Cecilia, LA. He was a member of Saint Alphonsus Catholic Church. Calvin proudly served his country in the United States Army. He was a retired member of the Local 198. Calvin never met a stranger, loved helping people, enjoyed listening to his Cajun music on Saturday mornings, and most importantly, he was always right.

Calvin is preceded in death by his father, Arthur Naquin; mother, Villa Kidder Naquin Pontiff; infant daughter, Audrey Naquin; great-grandchild, Emily Nicole Naquin; brother, Ivy Naquin; and sisters, Patricia Naquin and Audrey Naquin.
